Buy? Build? Remodel? Homebuyers Fair Lays Out The Options

homes-4Ready for a new home but not sure if you should buy or build? Maybe you have a favorite neighborhood, where you might consider purchasing a fixer-upper, tear-down, or vacant lot and creating a new home that perfectly suits your lifestyle. Or perhaps you like your current neighborhood, but your home no longer meets your needs. More options…remodel, or demolish and rebuild.

Homeworks Construction, an award-winning design / build company that has built or remodeled more than 1,000 homes throughout Oahu, has been meeting clients’ needs with virtually every type of home style for more than two decades. Their work has earned them the Building Industry Association’s Remodeler of the Year Award and recognition as one of the nation’s Top 500 Remodelers by Qualified Remodeler magazine. Recently the readers of Hawaii Home & Remodeling voted Homeworks “Best Builder, Best Contractor, and Best Bath Designer.”

Examples of new custom and remodeled homes designed and built by Homeworks can be viewed at their booth at the Hawaii Homebuyers Fair, coming up next Saturday, August 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hawaii Convention Center. Sales Coordinator Kim Green, a Certified Green Professional and Aging in Place Specialist, will be at the booth and available to discuss your best options given your family profile and budget. Or you can make an appointment for a free consultation at the Homeworks offices.

If your goal is to build a new custom home in a specific neighborhood, Green advises enlisting the services of a Realtor who can be on the lookout for a suitable property. He also recommends meeting with a lender to explore the various types of financing available and the loan amount you can qualify for.

To learn more about the services Homeworks provides as a design / build firm, pick up free brochures and flyers at their booth. Ask about new discount and incentive programs being offered to military service members and veterans and ‘first responders.’

You can also make reservations for the next free monthly Build New Or ReDo Seminar, which will be held on Tuesday, September 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Homeworks showroom, 2111 South Beretania Street. The September program will focus on the latest guidelines for design and construction of Accessory Dwelling Units.
